CPA Exam Simulation Format Change in 2009?

According to the Uniform CPA Examination Alert the old format of two simulations will be replaced by 5 or 6 shorter Task-Based Simulations. Unlike the current two simulations, the new simulations will be independent of each other and each question will derive from a new set of information.

Once approved by the end of 2008, the new format could be implemented in early 2009.
